Renee Richards gets ESPN treatment

The documentary film 'Renee,' about transgender tennis player Renee Richards, will air tonight at 8pm as part of ESPN's '30 for 30' documentary series. Richards was originally denied eligibility to play in the women's U.S. Open in 1976; Her legal victory in U.S. courts winning the right to play is our #12 most important moment in LGBT sports history, and the most important moment in sports history for transgender athletes.
